About the Program

Since 1992, the Institute’s Energy & Sustainability program has played a crucial thought-leadership role in shaping policy discourse and informing policymakers and investors on the most important trends in the energy sector. We focus on matters related to energy development, investment,

natural resource use, and energy transformation in the Americas. The Energy & Sustainability program is one of the most respected in the Western Hemisphere, leveraging global insights and experiential learning to inform regional stakeholders across sectors.

“We are big fans of IOA and the terrific events you organize.”
